Who wore it best – From the runway to the carpet (Model vs. Selena Gomez in Marchesa)
Posted on November 11 2011
This week’s battle of who wore it best is over a gorgeous embroidered Marchesa top. Filled with exquisite details and channeling the ballet meets high glamour, this piece is not easy to pull off. Selena Gomez stepped out at MTV’s European Music Awards sporting the Marchesa creation with a tousled do, silver peep-toes, a red box clutch and no pants, looking slightly overwhelmed.
Her version has also been modified from the original which featured more tulle on the sleeves and on the neck giving it a much more Victorian feel. Kudos to Selena for stepping out of her comfort zone but I’m giving the model the crown on this one. In addition to making the mistake of wearing this top as a dress, what we have here is an unfortunate case of the dress wearing the owner and her stylist should have known better. The top is dramatic enough and didn’t need her overwhelming waves to compete with. Her hair should have been pulled back to bring focus to the stunning cut of the top’s high neck.
I also love the contrast created by the leather pants on the model. Bringing a sleek and modern element to the look continues to play on the edginess that the top is going for while maintaining a clean balance between the top and bottom. Who do you think won this battle? Selena or the model? Share your thoughts below…
